Parent Peek at the Week
EXTRA EDITION - Week of April 19th, 2021
Monday - Pivot Day
As we pivot to remote learning after the April Break, we ask that you exercise patience on Monday, April 19, as our educators may require time to access their technology kits and get their remote learning classrooms up and running. This will be a Pivot Day where you can expect teachers to welcome students back to school in the morning and provide students and families with detailed instructions on what to expect as classrooms move to remote learning.
On Day 2, Tuesday, April 20, students and families can expect full remote learning classroom instruction similar to what you experienced in January 2021. This online learning for all grades will involve a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Students will spend part of each school day linked to their teacher live online, and complete the rest of their learning independently using resources posted online by teachers.
Please check in on Edsby as teachers will be posting all important information for you there.
We know that moving to online is VERY challenging for everyone. We'll be contacting families who are not attending starting Tuesday, to see how we can support you and your family. Please feel free to reach out to us as well - as we can problem solve and get through this together!
Technology Pick up
1. You fill in the Google Form, email or call the board office. This information was supplied through emails and online communication to families last week.
2. The information is collated at the Board office, where they prepare Chromebooks from a central stock.
3. On Monday before 12pm (we hope!), the Chromebooks are delivered to the school.
4. Before 12pm, I organize the Chromebooks and prepare them for pick up.
I know it seems to make sense that you would just send me a quick email and that I would give you a Chromebook - but as you can see, there are quite a few steps! Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this process.
For families who have requested a Chromebook, you can pick it up from the school between 12pm and 3pm on Monday. Please come to the school parking lot. If another person is currently picking up, please wait at a distance until they have left. When there is a spot at the front door – please give your child’s name and the Chromebook will be brought out to the table outside the front door.
For families who are picking up SEA technology, you can pick it up from the school between 9am and 3pm. wait at a distance until they have left. When there is a spot at the front door – please give your child’s name and the technology backpack will be brought out to the table outside the front door.
Please let me know if you have any questions!

Please stay safe!
The government is currently prohibiting all outdoor social gatherings and organized public events, except for with members of the same household or one other person from outside that household who lives alone or a caregiver for any member of the household. Please do not have your children meet up with friends at this time!
Currently all outdoor recreational amenities, such as golf courses, basketball courts and soccer fields are closed.
In the wise words of our Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Rosanna Salvaterra: “We need everyone, over these next two weeks, to stay home and avoid contact with others as much as possible."
